My XH tyres (245/65/70) hadn't been rotated by the previous owner; which probably explains why it has already had at least one set of new tyres.

Re: Commander front bumper

Re: Are our jeeps crossovers?

Re: Moving to FL, do i really need 4wd ?

Really ..... For a 2mpg gain you want to lose a vehicle you know and have spent cash on maintaining. Doesn't sound sensible to me!

Re: Are our jeeps crossovers?

Disagree. Unibody means its a monocoque, crossovers are cars; which are usually monocoques, pumped up to look off roaderish, for town folk who want to sit higher than a car, but which still feels...

Re: Black oil

Black oil is normal due to the EGR routing exhaust back into the engine and the low ash oil is designed to keep the soot suspended in the oil, instead of clogging up the engine.

Re: Mystery Problem with Warning Lights/Tachometer

Re: 2005 GC 3.0L crd oil leak

Change to the black seal and mop up, but your swirl motor will probably been contaminated and increases the odds on it failing later, but a cheap fix exists if you search "swirl"

Re: Cant fix dash lights, garage offering to buy back the Commander

I tested modern cars and just couldn't get comfortable. So I've accepted cashback instead and keep the Jeep. Bit of a gamble, but so is any used car.

Re: Cant fix dash lights, garage offering to buy back the Commander

I'm not sure its a deal breaker, and with the new EGR it goes like a stabbed rat and EVIC reported over 30mpg over a 17 mile drive, was only getting 25 before.
